.: Will I Be The Next MasterChef Blogger? :.

Ok, so I decided to take part in Nuffnang's Malaysia’s First Ever MasterChef Blogger challange. I was actually at first quite reluctant to take part, tho I was very interested. Sure, I have whipped up a couple of dishes in my humble kitchen, fed a mob of more than half-a-dozen people multiple times (without causing much food poisoning after, mind you), but to take part in a competition where there is potentially really good cooks out there, I wasn't too sure. But then again, I thought, what the heck, no harm just trying. And so I did.

The first hurdle was to write a blogpost on why I should be crowned “Malaysia’s First Ever Blogger MasterChef” by writing about my signature dish/recipe.

So I submit my entry here of my Chocolate Molten Lava Cake, and guess what?... I was called to take part in the semi-finals challange this Saturday!

Ok, to be honest, I am a lil estatic and a lil bit nervous all in one. Because, in this semi final round, 20 bloggers will take part in 2 challanges (I have yet to know what those two challenges are! *scary*) and from there, only the top 5 will be selected. The venue will be at The Cooking House, Desa Sri Hartamas, and I wish that I can bring all of you guys to support me, but sadly, I could only invite one guest. So naturally, the man behind such *coff* great *coff* chef gets the lucky chance.

There will be another similiar semi final round next week (8th October) for the remaning 20 bloggers shortlisted and from there, another top 5 will be selected.

The 10 selected bloggers will then have a final cook-off in some shopping mall in KL on the 16th October 2011.

And the prizes at stake are:

GRAND PRIZE (Best MasterChef Blogger) : RM3,000.00 in cash + Panasonic IH Cooker (Model: KY-C227B) worth RM2, 799 + BHPetrol Cash Voucher worth RM 500.00 + Ipad1 (16GB) with WIFI + Masterchef Pendrive (4GB) + Mitten + Nestle Hamper worth RM 300.00

Runner up Prize – (2nd Best MasterChef Blogger) : RM2,000.00 in cash + Panasonic Microwave (Model: NN-GS597) worth RM999 + BHPetrol Cash Voucher worth RM 400 + Ipad1 (16GB) with WIFI + Masterchef Pendrive (4GB) + Mitten + Nestle Hamper worth RM 200.00

8 x Consolation Prize Winners : a BHPPetrol Cash Voucher worth RM 100 + Nestle Hamper worth RM 150.00

The Bonus prize and title of “The Best MasterChef ‘Buzz’ Blogger” will also be awarded to the semi-finalist (Any of the 40 Chosen Bloggers) who creates the MOST buzz, hype & awareness on their social spaces (Twitter, Facebook, blog) about MasterChef Malaysia and this contest during the second phase (between 1-15 October 2011).

Bonus Prize- the Best MasterChef Buzz Blogger: RM1,000.00 Cash + Panasonic Microwave (Model : NN-GS597) worth RM999 + BHPetrol Cash Voucher worth RM 200.00 + Ipad1 (16GB) with WIFI + Masterchef Pendrive (4GB) + Mitten + Nestle Hamper worth RM 150.00

Such great goodies to be won, but if all else fails, at least I will come home with Hong Leong Credit Card merchandise + MasterChef pendrive (4GB) + cooking mittens + T-Shirt.

Now, let's just hope & pray that I don't burn the kitchen down

give food poisoning to the judges

or something to that line.

Wish me luck!

Great meeting you at the Blogger MasterChef challenge. I thought your dish looked really good but I guess the judges wanted something that was out of the ordinary... Great job though and thanks for sharing your tomato with me! Must try out that Choc Lava Cake!!
